    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 Sit-On-Top Kayak - 2012/2013 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just right Did a lot of research before buying; many favorable reviews; fully justified. Very nifty fishing kayak in all respects -- have had it out in quiet lakes a few times with excellent results and I think it would also perform well in chop. Not as fast as a sea kayak, natch, but quicker than I expected through the water. Extremely maneuverable and very comfortable -- 3 hours of fishing and seat still feels good. Only con is lack of flush mounted rod holders. Have purchased a couple to fit the SlideTrax system, but not sure I'm going to leave them attached when transporting. Terrific value for the price.
